Happy Thursday everyone! Here’s a quick little pick-me-up inspired by a couple of patients that came by yesterday. Got any requests? We’d love to hear them! Just send us a quick email with the subject “Song Request” to [email protected] and we’ll do our best to honor them. Enjoy your ticket to a fantastic Friday!
Many of you have asked me “What’s with all the music, Dr. Weiss?” Well, as I’ve told some of you:
I personally call every surgery patient on the evening of surgery just to make sure they are doing well and have no questions that need answering. Occasionally, I would be at the piano and play a song that we had listened to that day. I gradually realized that I wanted to go through all the music that I had played during my life and at least start making a list of the songs that I had recently played.
Well, there are now about 600 songs on the list and I realized that it in a way it represented the ‘soundtrack of my life’! And that’s how I got the idea to record these songs and share them with my patients, friends and family. After I record them they will reside here, for easy access.
Music is truth. It’s honest. It’s really the first social media, where in a way, people could share their souls directly. And isn’t that what the purpose of social media is and why it’s so popular - trying to share who you really are, as completely and directly as possible?
Finally, it has been (and will continue to be) a genuine pleasure sharing these different songs with you and I really appreciate all of your positive feedback!!
America the Beautiful - Memorial Day
May 29, 2016
I’d like to once again bring back what had become a yearly tradition and re-share this Weiss Music Minute (actually, 1 minute and 15 seconds) with my family of patients and friends. Help me honor and remember those who died for our country, and pray that many less will need to die in the future.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the fantastic Moms (and moms-to-be!) that make up our family of patients! With the help of multi-track recording and auto harmony, Dr. Weiss has put together a little video to convey a special thank you to our Moms. For best sound quality, listen to this video using headphones.

For those of you celebrating Easter today, here’s a little throwback to Dr. Weiss performing “Easter Parade” for his poodle Bisou. Happy Easter!
Springsteen at the LA Sports Arena 2016 – (Rosalita)
March 24, 2016
Continuing our musical trend, Dr. Weiss attended the Springsteen concert last weekend and was super excited to tell you all about it. Of course, still images and text were not going to do The Boss justice. So he stitched together this awesome video summary of Springsteen’s final concert at the LA Sports Arena (the venue is scheduled to be closed and demolished later this year). We’ve got jumping crowds, classic songs clips, Dr. Weiss at 19 years old, and a surprise duet! But we can’t say anymore – you’ve got to watch and see!
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling
March 17, 2016
As luck would have it, we’ve got a brand-new musical medley for our fantastic family of patients in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! Of course it’s filled with beautiful piano music, but it also features Dr. Weiss playing the penny whistle! Click to watch the video and find out a little more about penny whistles as well as hear some traditional Irish songs played on it! Wishing you all a happy, safe St. Patrick’s Day!
Nobody Knows You – Dr. Weiss plays at patient party!
October 10, 2015
Sometimes we just like to say thank you to our awesome family of patients and friends, hang out, and have a little fun. And that’s exactly what we did this summer! We couldn’t invite everyone (at least not until the SuperDome rent drops a little), but some lucky folks got to eat, drink and be merry with a little accompaniment by the fabulous live music of Nutty Jazz. Hope to see YOU at our next get-together! You can find more about Nutty Jazz and their music here: http://nuttyjazz.com/
